Power awning and adjustments

All last summer, I could not adjust our power awning, I was looking at the wrong place. I just figured out how to adjust it and am thrilled
There are 6 holes for adjustments and that means more shade and just as important, I can leave it up when it rains with one side pitched.

Question is: Can I retract the awning in an adjusted position (as in adjusted equally on both sides).

You can retract it when it is adjusted. Just need to be within three positions to retract otherwise the canopy will not roll up evenly and can damage the canopy and arms.

I always retracted my equally although it says within 3 notches on either side. If it hard to adjust, a spray can of dry lube used for the sliders works well.

Power awning and adjustments

funny thing is when I finally discovered how to adjust it, I then saw the LABEL lololol
So if I understand well, I can retract the the "pitched" awning (not flat) as long as it is within 3 holes. Not 4 or 5 even if they are equal.

On a side note, mine stuck last year, I can't remember if it was open or closed, anyways, be sure to lube the struts as well. It was fine after that. I'm sorta lucky in that my dealer is located right across the street from the CG where we store our TT and camp. I can be there is about 2 minutes with my questions and issues!

You can pitch both sides. To roll it up, you need to have the pitch adjustment within three clicks of each other.
